Looking Ahead

ARTICLE CONTINUES BELOW AD

Back to more normal trade wind weather for the rest of the week. Clouds and brief showers should favor windward areas, especially during the night and morning hours. Leeward areas are forecast to be mostly dry, except for afternoon clouds and a few showers over the leeward slopes of the Big Island. The moderate trade winds are expected to weaken for the upcoming weekend, and into the early part of next week.
